elizabeth warren. i use the word desperate on purpose. after releasing one ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race, after his staffers were caught childishly mocking native americans with the whole tom hawk chop and war whoop thing, after the cherokee nation asked scott brown to apologize for that and he refused to do so, after all that scott brown has put out a second ad just today again attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. the scott brown campaign must have some amazing internal poll numbers showing that a race-based campaign is working wonders for him. because i don't know how else you explain this. it's not a whisper campaign, anonymous flyers on windshields in church parking lots like we used to expect for this sort of thing. this comes straight from the campaign unapologetically. just to be clear as a bell about what the story is. it's not that scott brown has ever disproven or anybody has ever disproven that elizabeth warren has native american ancestry. it's not been disproven. it's not a lie. scott brown's whole beef with her, the whole basis for his u.s.

[laughter] >> 1967, perhaps the best named case in supreme court history, loving v. virginia. what was it about? it was the case that said states could no longer ban racial intermarriage. think about that, 1967. there are people in this room who were on live in 1967. [laughter] and it was still illegal in a lot of states for racial intermarriage. when barack obama'
